BEMO is proud to announce our newest hire of 2023: Raymond King.
Raymond has joined the BEMO Customer Success Team as our new Customer Success Manager and will be reporting to Nina Cullen, Senior Director of Customer Success.
So, who is Raymond? let's find out!
Raymond King: Customer Success Manager
We’re very excited to have Raymond come on board. Bringing with him over a decade of invaluable experience in Tech sales, having spearheaded numerous pilot programs, established new teams, and steered business strategy, he's a true asset to the BEMO team.
Currently residing in Arlington, Virginia, Raymond shares his home with his girlfriend and a lively assortment of two dogs, frogs, birds, and fish—clearly, a man who adores his animals.
Here he is with his girlfriend at Coors Field: Home of the Rockies, his favorite baseball team! And on the right, we have Aodhan (husky) and Pebbles (lab mix).
Even though baseball is Raymond’s favorite sport, he enjoys a variety of other activities that get him out in the great outdoors! Whether it’s surfing, camping, hiking, or mastering board sports, he finds joy in connecting with nature.
In the picture above, we see him in his gear, ready to pull some tricks on his One wheel, an activity he's recently embraced with enthusiasm. "It's the sport I've most recently picked up, and it has been fantastic for me," he shares. Switching gears, in the adjacent frame, he's captured just before riding the waves, showcasing his versatile love for both land and sea.
And speaking of nature, Raymond's green thumb extends to over 100 houseplants, cultivated with care. Beyond his personal haven of a garden, he's channeling this love into a budding entrepreneurship: “I am starting a small business growing and selling rare houseplants to fuel my passion for them,” he says.
On the left with can see Raymond proudly tending to one of his many plant babies. On the right, he and his girlfriend embrace the scenic beauty of the Estes Park in Colorado on one of their trips.
Some more from our fun Q&A with Raymond:
What’s your secret talent that no one knows about? I’m very good at reading dogs, which helps me be a good trainer for reactive and aggressive dogs.
What’s the most helpful way for you to get feedback? I prefer in the moment or real time feedback, direct but also feedback that comes with next steps or suggestions.
What’s your favorite movie? Star Wars (Empire).
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? I am fairly adventurous, so it is hard to nail down one thing, but most recently was our hiking trip. In one week, I rappelled slot canyons, did one of the hardest hikes I've ever done in the Subway, hiked Bryce canyon in the snow, and finished it all by conquering Angel's landing, a very narrow (like should width between the wall and the ledge), dangerous hike up a ridge with only a chain to grab onto and over a thousand foot straight drop on either side.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, you’ve never been, where would you go? Svalbard, Norway.
Welcome to the team, Raymond! We are so glad to have you join us!
